Adult: I'm technically open to it, because who knows what I'll find, but it's a super hard sell. I'm only interested in #ownvoices projects that walk the line of being funny and lighthearted while still adding to a larger sociopolitical conversation.

If you're thinking of querying me but don't know if your project is a fit, here's some #MSWL framing that should help:

For PB, I want 1) content that looks seriously at sociopolitical realities that kids face, ultimately ending with empowerment and hope, 2) stories that teach readers about a new place and/or culture, 3) nonfiction that delights and inspires. Only interested in #ownvoices.

I’m generally not a good fit for music books, that being said, I would LOVE an #ownvoices #YA that takes place in the world of #kpop #MSWL

ULTIMATE #MSWL please someone give me an #ownvoices #Hmong #YA novel about immigration and the #SecretWar. We need this story, especially for teens. No more hidden history.

#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.
